Google Play Shows Off Over 100 Must-Have Tablet Apps; Including Pocket Casts, Real Racing 3, CBS Sports, and More

March 27, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Just a few hours ago, Google Play published an update on both their Twitter and Google+ pages where they were talking about Must-Have Tablet apps. Now we know one of the biggest problems with tablet apps on Android is that there aren’t a whole lot of them. Most of them are just the Phone-sized app stretched out to fit the screen. Well today their tweet was:

Now there are a few tablet optimized apps out there that I use everyday. Which include Flipboard, Currents, Pocket, Pocket Casts, and many others on my Nexus 7. Google Play has around 130 different apps featured on this list on Google Play. Some of these apps include CBS Sports, Star Wars Pinball, Must-Have Recipes from Better Homes, Nutty Fluffies Rollercoaster, MLS MatchDay, and many more including some great games and livewallpapers. These aren’t the best apps or even all the tablet-optimized apps. But they are Google’s Staffs picks. Which some of us will agree with their picks and many of us will disagree with them. Which is all good.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m hoping that this will help get developers attention to update their apps to be tablet optimized. I believe that’s the main reason most people don’t see a need for a tablet, at least at this point. With Tablet prices coming down, thanks to the Kindle Fire, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, all that’s left are a big number of tablet-optimized apps being available for us all to use and love.

What are some of your favorite tablet-optimized apps or apps that you use on your tablet? Let us know your picks in the comments down below
